Travel health pharmacy services
Travelling abroad is incredibly exciting but presents risks and challenges too. However, if you’re prepared and plan head, you can minimise any difficulties so all you need to focus on when you get there is enjoying your trip.
If you’re travelling anywhere outside Western Europe, the USA, Australia or New Zealand, you may well need to take precautions, such as travel vaccinations or malaria prevention tablets. You should make an appointment with your pharmacist at least four (and ideally eight) weeks before travel to discuss any vaccinations you may need.
You can find out more about the risks and recommendations of the country you are visiting, and whether you will require any vaccines, by looking at the NHS Fitfortravel website and checking the guidance on your destination or destinations.
